What to expect during your Physiotherapy appointments

The Initial Assessment

In the beginning, your physiotherapist will do a thorough assessment in order to determine the reason of your suffering. When you arrive for your consultation, you can expect to be asked a few questions about your medical history and current health status.

A physiotherapist may ask you to perform a few movements or exercises so that they may accurately measure your level of mobility. We recommend wearing loose clothes to feel you comfortable. Your doctor may also ask you to walk a short distance to see if your condition affects your gait in any way. In some cases, clinical testing may be required.

It is possible that the physiotherapist will ask you to remove your clothes if the part of your body that is bothering you is covered. Your physiotherapist will likely come up with a treatment plan for you after seeing you. There is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach to treatment. The number of sessions will depend on your case. The average session lasts 30 minutes, however the practitioner has the discretion to extend it if necessary.

After your initial evaluation, the physiotherapist will begin therapy. Physiotherapy employs a variety of therapeutic modalities. Thanks to the soft tissue manipulation (muscles, tendons, and ligaments) (STM), stress and muscle stiffness are alleviated. As a result, the healing process speeds up. If you’ve had a surgery or have been injured, STM may help you reduce the amount of fluid in your bodily tissue.

Strengthening and flexibility-improving exercises and stretches are also a part of physiotherapy. To get you back to your best, a physiotherapist can show you the best exercises to perform at home. You must follow each direction that our physiotherapist shows you.

Physiotherapy Follow Up

Your therapist may offer you a few simple physiotherapy exercises to practice at home after your appointments are over. These include stretches, lunges, and other exercises. You can simply do it at home while standing, sitting or laying down. Neck rotation and head tilting are two of the most common exercises. Your physiotherapist can provide you advice on how to avoid re-injuring yourself in the future. He may guide you choosing a healthier life style. The physiotherapist may ask you to stop lifting heavy objects on a regular basis or adopting a hunched over desk position, etc.
